|Best Spinach Pakoras I Ever Ate|
Melissas's Red Fresno chiles, coconut milk, and some spices from friends Kaumudi Marathe' of Un-Curry and from Patty Erd's The Spice House. I used a bit of K's Bengali 5-Spice + More and quite a bit of Patty's Sweet Curry Powder which is "ideal for those who are new to the distinctive flavor of these Indian spices". The 5-Spice Blend was whole spice so this went in the pan first for a light toasting, and the Sweet Curry Powder went in later for wonderful flavor and color. Kaumudi had also recently given me some of her special Fresh Mango Mustard Seed Pickle and Spice Road Cashews, both of which perfectly garnished my coconut curry concoction.
